I realized these seem to be piling up in the 'upcoming' thread, so here goes:

OCEAN'S THIRTEEN
The style/cool of 12 and the tight structure of 11. Without ever reaching the highs of either, imho, but better than I expected and definitely worth checking out.

Oh, and Damon's fake nose? It's called "The Brody".

28 WEEKS LATER
Visually impressive but underdeveloped overall and dissapointing in the end. Would have benifited from another half hour and another plot arc.

P.O.T.C. III
Better then two, not as good as one, lot's of strong imagry and a well developed story, but some unnescary plot devices unclear motives make it more of a challenge to follow on the first viewing then the other two.

BABEL
It's like a good, interesting, very well edited, decididly more epic version of Crash. Very nice, great success.

Copying Beethoven After watching this I can't wait to see Relating Einstein:

Scene: An aparment in Bern, Switzerland.

Mileva Einstein (Sarah Jessica Parker), chewing a sausage, glances over the shoulder of her husband, Albert (Jim Carey), as he is hard at work at the kitchen table: Oh, you silly putti, here's your problem. It's not E equals m-squared c. It's E equals mc-squared!

RUNNING WITH SCISSORS: loved it, the main character's age thing didn't really bother me as much as the Neal character--why couldn't this guy Augusten Burroughs's life been a bit more KINKY BOOTS or THE FULL MONTY, those Brits seem to have lives that lend themselves to cool montages set to disco music. That's what RWS needed, not psycho mustashe dude. Nice ending at the bus stop, very sweet scene.

Three Brothers This film may well be the very heart of cinema.

Yeah, Ocean's 13 was sorta boring on the "13th" member...perhaps 14 will make up for what 13 lacks.

Running With Scissors really freaked me out when, during the scene where Augusten is cutting dude's hair in the kitchen, my brain suddenly clicked that this was the first time I'd seen Joseph Fiennes and Gwyneth Paltrow in the same room since Shakespeare In Love.

And then my brain broke.


Good film, though. I liked how they showed real-Augusten and fake-Augusten together at the end.

Hey, could you send up a flare or something before posting statements like that?
